CI Name: PY43
Pigment Name: Natural Hydrated Iron Oxide
Lightfastness: ASTM I - Excellent
French Raw Sienna, PY43, natural hydrated iron oxide has the same dry and soft suede like quality of French Burnt Ochre. In colour it is a deeper and richer tone than our regular Raw Sienna and in masstone is similar to Italian Raw Sienna but with a slightly less warm and slightly more gold/green characteristic. Its tint is pale but warm and exhibits much of the same gold yellow quality found in the masstone.
Each colour is ground to enhance the beauty and luminosity specific to that particular pigment. Some colours will feel slightly gritty; others extremely smooth. Pigments are ground in pure, premium, alkali-refined and PH- balanced linseed oil and made in batches no larger than five gallons at a time. This provides total control over the product, much like the late nineteenth-century French colour makers. All the materials are hand measured, and every ounce of paint is scrutinized. The paint is packed in 37 ml and 150 ml non-reactive aluminum tubes. Larger quantities of paint are packed in aluminium cans using only the purest materials.
